Maserati's MC12 at Imola....

Discussion in 'Motorsports' started by RacingManiac, Sep 3, 2004.

  1. Running as non-Championship entry to test the water, the car is run in reduced downforce trim to make the other team feel less threaten....

  2. WTF is sooooo wrong with the 575 ??
     
  3. It simply is not good enough....and Prodrive's 550 set a really high standard for it to follow....
     
  4. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> . This blows ! Iwas so excited by it when it won at its first outing.
     
  5. The MC12 is stonkingly fast. I bet it will smoke the rest of the class if restrictions are not placed on it.
     
  6. Not bad for a first outing.
     
  7. 575s old its based on a old chasis, anyway man Saleen is fast.. I thought MC 12 would be faster..
     
  8. It will and thats exactly why I hope it never races for real. I hate this stupid car! Go S7-Rs!!
     
  9. Isn't the privateer C5-R in that series?
     
  10. ngt is all porsches and 1 ferrari?
     
  11. Qualifying Result...

  12. I really expected a top 4 qualifying result, especially with a veteran like Salo at the wheel.
     
  13. And not to mention Johnny Herbert in the sister car....

    The general speculation is they are sandbagging, but then again the restriction placed on them aerodynamically might have hurt them more than intended....
     
  14. they finished 2nd and 3rd. They already have Lest ??
     
  15. Pretty amazing that even with the restrictions the MC12 finished in 2nd and 3rd.
     
  16. MC12 should race without restrictions in a different class and other brands should be invited to participate. I'm sure that Porsche knows how to smoke the Trident.

     
  17. I say bring the old GT1/GT2/GT3 format back.
     
  18. The rest of the manufacturers shouldnt have to make all new cars to meet the performance of 1 car. All race series' are looking for ways to bring costs down. That would do nothing but drive costs up.
     
  19. Who cares about costs? I want to see the best cars on the track.
    It sucks to see a Saleen beating an MC12 just because is "restricted".

     
  20. Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT did terrible
     
  21. Maserati MC12 will bring serious damages to other cars...
     
  22. Welcome to GT class racing.
     
  23. THe Saleen S7-R is restricted by its air restrictor as well. The reason for that is that it is not for sale in Europe, only the US.
     
  24. Maserati MC12 + Aston Martin DBR9 + 2005 24 Hours of Le Mans = a race I am intent on seeing. (and hopefully both start campaigning in ALMS, since Lime Rock isn't too far from the USCGA).
